So I stepped into what I discovered was a sink-hole in my front yard. Right next to the water meter access lid. Apparently, after five days of torrential rainfall, this was a common result, as I learned from talking to the Public Utilities folks of our city. They said they would send someone right over, which they did. When I got home from work today, I drove up to find the results of their work. They dug up the meter and installed a new one and filled in the area around it with dirt and tossed the usual Grade “D” grass seed all over the spot. I got a chuckle out of this and had to snap a photo. I swear, this is exactly as they left it. Nothing has been touched after they “touched” it.
